The SA will 'translate' what you say for their records and it could be inaccurate....which leads the tech going down the wrong path. When my bluetooth module failed, I wrote up the whole history. The tech looked at it confirmed my issue was in fact the module. They didn't charge me at all. For my problem today, here's exactly what I wrote.

*Airbag light was set off by customer diagnosing problem and disconnecting harness with battery attached
*Main window control switch will not control all 3 passenger windows or passenger mirror
*Driver door doesn't lock with remote FOB or central locking when car is put into motion

Other Facts
*Driver Door Actuator was replaced with BMW part purchased at International Auto in fall of 2010
*Replacement window control switch was swapped to test for switch failure
*During examination of door jamb harness, it appears that a pin maybe broken (5th from bottom)
*Key left in ignition doesn't chime when door left open
*Interior lights do not activate when driver door is open

did the window switch replacement help solve the problem? I'm having the same issue.

How did you do that! I can't get use to the one flash when driving the X. I just don't use it. My W211 will flash three times. :thumbup:

The only thing I did for the X today was get on my back and wash as much of the under carriage as I could get to. Tried to get as much salt and crap off the car as possible. Then I washed her with HOT water and BMW soap. Then topped her off with about a cup of anti-freeze (BMW). Everything is working perfectly... fingers crossed and knocking on wood ;)

I changed Brake light light bulb. Hurray, no more error lights.

Which setting in the LCM or GM FSW_PSW is that?

Put in a third row seat and a twin turbo....:bustingup

Actually, re-routed my satellite antenna (from front to back) and will be doing an expansion tank replacement.

Got her a wheel alignment. She's straight as an arrow now. Cursed out the tech though. Moron set my psi @ 50 as opposed to following whats recommended.

I know she needs a wash, but this darn snow in NYC is crazy. Glad my Conti's DWS are awesome!

Well guys, I enjoyed reading all your articles on this thread and some on the other threads. Sadly, I am giving up my X5 possibly next weekend. I got her not even a year ago. I put in a little bit of mods: powdercoating the 20" staggered Y-wheels, smoking the tails, replacing the grilles with black ones, and installing the x-pipe. She's pretty much blacked out. I really love this car but we must part ways. I live in Pasadena, CA so if anyone out here is interested or may know someone, let me know before I turn her back in. She's an '03 X5 4.6is, black, $80K miles only, recently serviced and has really good set of tires, not even 1 year. Thanks X5ers!

Bought some tires for her and made plans for a deceptive skid plate
